Life Together: A weekend of reflection and renewal in the style of Bonhoeffer's Finkenwalde Seminary
 
September 29th – October 1st 2017
Freeborn Church and Bonhoeffer Botanical Gardens 
Exit 215, Stanwood, WA
Rev. Dr. Mark Brocker, Faculty
Rev. Erik Samuelson, Chaplain
 
A weekend retreat in fall 2017 for lay and ordained Christian leaders based on Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s community practice at the Finkenwalde seminary, as outlined in “Life Together” and other writings from that period. The purpose of his weekend experience at Freeborn Lutheran Church and Bonhoeffer Botanical Gardens in Stanwood, WA is to engage a community in a weekend of “Life Together” for personal renewal, learning, spiritual and vocational discernment, and community formation, as a way to begin connecting Bonhoeffer’s insights and work to the challenges we face today.  We will use Bonhoeffer's "Life Together and Prayer Book of the Bible" as the common text.
 
Free evening lecture on Saturday September 30th by Rev. Dr. Mark Brocker connecting Dietrich Bonhoeffer's work to the challenges of today with the theme "Faith under fire: What We Can Learn from the Church Struggle in Nazi Germany" will be open to the public. 
 
Cost: $50 per person, including meals
Evening lecture is free ($15 for dinner)
Scholarships available for students and others needing financial assistance
 
Lodging: Nearby hotels
A free "no frills" camping option is available

GIVE

 
 
Our God is a God of abundance and He loves to give. He sacrificed willingly on the cross and then invited us into fullness of life. As His children, we are called to imitate Him. Our generosity in giving is a demonstration of God’s character and a response to what He has done for us.
